Mace and Chain of Office
Originally a medieval knight’s weapon, the mace evolved
into a symbol of royal scepters in various crown jewel
collections. Large versions of the scepter have come to
represent the power and authority of institutions such as
our University. The mace measures 50 inches in length and
is made of Tennessee cherry wood embellished with solid
sterling silver and lapis lazuli. The Tennessee flower, the iris,
denotes the public the University serves who, by their
loyalty, give it strength and power. The leaves form a crown
to symbolize the ennobling achievements of our graduates.
Tennessee fresh­water pearls, the official state gem, suggest
the inestimable value of inquiring young minds. The
streamer on the wood shaft carries the names by which the
University has been known since its founding. The finial at
the base of the mace is a stylized nut, representing the
core, the seed from which springs the mighty tree of those
committed to lifelong learning.
The chain of office worn by the president is made of solid
sterling silver. The lapis lazuli gems, mounted on scroll
shapes, represent the colleges within the University. The
knotted components depict the interdependence of
knowledge and the various academic programs of MTSU.
The sterling and lapis lazuli represent the University colors
of blue and white. The Great Seal of the State of Tennessee
embellishes the medallion suspended from the chain,
representing the University as part of the Tennes­see Board
of Regents system.
These unique emblems of authority were designed and
crafted by Professor Klaus Kallenberger, formerly of the Art
Department. The mace and chain of office are a generous
gift to the University from the MTSU Foundation.

Afternoon
Dr. William H. Leggett, associate professor in the
Department of Sociology and Anthropology, received his
Ph.D. from the University of Illinois–Urbana-Champaign
in 2003. He is a cultural anthropologist who specializes
in issues of globalization, work, and the cultural
dynamics of human mobility. Dr. Leggett’s publications,
including his most recent book, The Flexible Imagination
(2013), examine the interesting cultural encounters that
take place in and around the transnational corporate
offices of Southeast Asia. His current research concerns
the changing demographics of middle Tennessee.
Specifically, Dr. Leggett has conducted research on the
challenges immigrants and refugees recently settled in
Rutherford County face in maintaining a healthy diet
and lifestyle. This research has taken Dr. Leggett and his
students into the homes, schools, and workplaces of our
immigrant neighbors.

Academic Regalia
The black gowns and colorful hoods traditionally worn in
Middle Tennessee State University commencement
ceremonies have their origins in the Middle Ages.
A statute in England in 1321 required that all “Doctors,
Licentiates, and Bachelors” wear gowns. In the second
half of the 14th century, the statutes of certain colleges
forbade “excess in apparel” and prescribed the wearing of
a long gown. Scholars were often clerics as well, and they
adopted costumes similar to those of monastic orders.
While the special attire covered rank or social status, thus
lending a uniform look to ceremonies, it also served
another purpose: warmth in drafty, unheated buildings.
As the universities began to pass from the control of the
church, colors often were added to the somber robes and
hoods, eventually signifying the degree and specialization.
The cut of the gown, which is usually black, also varies
with the degree held—pointed sleeves for the bachelor’s
degree; long, closed sleeves with a slit in the arm for the
master’s degree; and round, open sleeves for the doctoral
degree. While the bache­lor’s and master’s gowns have no
ornamentation, the doctoral gown is faced down the front
with velvet and has three velvet bars across the sleeves.
At Middle Tennessee, hoods are worn by holders of the
master’s and doctor’s degrees, with the latter being longer.
Hoods are lined with the official colors of the university
which confers the degree; thus holders of degrees from
MTSU wear hoods lined in blue and white. The velvet
edging on the hood, and often the velvet edging on the
gown, represents the candidate’s major academic field.
Often holders of the Doctor of Philosophy degree (Ph.D.)
will be seen with regalia in dark blue instead of a color
symbolic of their discipline. This is accepted academic
dress. Further, the velvet lining on the gown may be the
same color as the discipline color of the hood, or may be
black. Colors associated with various subjects follow:
Agriculture - Maize
Arts, Letters, Humanities - White
Commerce, Accountancy, Business - Drab
Criminal Justice - Midnight Blue
Economics - Copper
Education - Light Blue
Fine Arts - Brown
Home Economics - Maroon
Journalism - Crimson
8
Law - Purple
Library Science - Lemon
Music - Pink
Nursing - Apricot
Oratory (Speech) - Silver Gray
Philosophy - Dark Blue
Physical Education - Sage Green
Science - Golden Yellow
Social Work - Citrine
The black cap, the mortarboard, is customarily worn.
There is no general rule for the position of the tassel. In
practice at Middle Tennessee State University, the tassel is
worn on the right. It may be shifted to the left after the
degree is awarded. Men may remove their caps during
prayer, the playing of the alma mater, and during the
commencement address.
Honorsgraduates are distinguished by the stoles added to
their gowns: gold for those graduating summa cum laude,
3.90 to 4.0 (overall grade point average); silver for magna
cum laude, 3.75 to 3.89; and white for cum laude, 3.50
to 3.74. Graduates with University Honors wear blue and
white cords and have completed at least 31 hours with a
3.25 average in the Honors program, a curriculum of
special classes designed for superior students. Those who
have maintained a minimum average of 3.65 in the
Honors program are graduating with Distinction in
University Honors. Honors graduates and persons
graduating with University Honors, along with those
who have been commissioned second lieutenant in the
United States Army, are listed in this program after the
degree recipients.
Some academic honor societies and programs may
provide cords, ribbons, medallions, or lapel pins designating the achievement and involvement of their members.
Since 1993, graduates of the University Honors College
have received the official Honors medallion in
recognition of their final thesis defense and completion
of special requirements of the college. The medallion
itself is a two-dimensional replica of the official seal of
the University Honors College and depicts a lighted
torch, three Ionic columns, and a lightning bolt.
Respectively, these symbolize the search for truth and
knowledge, the stability and unwavering commitment to
pursuing knowledge, and the flash of enlightenment or
creative energy.
Military veteran students are distinguished by red, white,
and blue cords in recognition of their admirable service
to their country.
International students may wear colorful sashes that are
representative of their country of origin. Each sash
symbolizes, in color and design, their country’s flag.
Experiential Learning Scholars are distinguished by blue,
silver, and white cords. These scholars completed
EXL-designated hands-on learning courses, an off-campus
service activity, an on-campus service activity, and a
portfolio of reflections on their EXL activities. The EXL
program provides students with opportunities for
hands-on experience, valuable networking, and an
opportunity to explore career paths through real-world
experience.
Most American colleges and universities have adopted a
uniform code. However, at any academic gathering,
costumes often are worn that are not described by these
guidelines. Some of these may be from foreign
universities, others from American institutions that have
preferred to remain with the European tradition of
allowing each school to determine its own costume.
Silver medallions worn by faculty denote 15 years of
service, and gold medallions represent 25 years.
Academic Banners
The banners carried and displayed at commencement
represent the University; its nine colleges (Basic and
Applied Sciences, Behavioral and Health Sciences,
Business, Education, Liberal Arts, Mass Communication,
Graduate Studies, University College, and University
Honors); and Walker Library. Design and execution of the
banners was a collaborative effort among Professor Janet
Higgins, Art Department; her student Kristi Baughman;
and Darrell Callis Burks, designer in Creative and Visual
Services and 2000 B.F.A. graduate. The colors used in
each banner represent disciplines within the colleges. The
University seal centers each banner, symbolizing that the
whole is greater than any of its parts.
